JAMMU, Oct 1: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Ghulam Nabi Azad today released a book titled “How to unleash your potential and achieve success: The Key Soft Skills”.
The book is based on extensive research on the topic and is authored by Dr Abdul Ghani, who is currently working as a Professor and Head of Unit in the Department of Orthopedics, Government Medical College Jammu.
Dr Ghani’s book is conceptualized on the fact that the obvious target of life for everyone is to be successful and satisfied, though the definition of success may be different to different people. Everyone has got one or another natural talent and potential to succeed, but the majority of us cannot explore and utilize it fully. As per research most of us use only 10 to 15 % of our potential, whereas the rest of it remains untapped and unutilized.
“Though knowledge, skills and hard work are very important, but they are not enough to fully unleash our potential. People who are successful have got some unique habits and skills especially the soft skills like communication skills, time management skills, optimal self-confidence, work-life balance and overall personal self-development, that we can adapt to our own lives to achieve the same success,” the Book mentions.
Dr Ghani says in his book that these soft skills are the real need of the hour in today’s competitive world. However, they are never taught formally in schools, colleges or universities. Hence there is a strong need to know about these key soft skills and then also we need to know how to acquire them.
The Book also highlights “How to succeed holistically and make the journey of life fun” by giving equal attention to every aspect of life with an emphasis on work-life balance rather than concentrating on only one aspect. It is published by White Falcon publishing house and is readily available on all the major online stores like Amazon, and Flipkart and will gradually be available in all the libraries and major book stores.
